4 stars This album, the follow up to the fabulous The Maria Dimension continues in the same vein as the previous album. Pulsing, swirling synthesizer sounds flow around the bizarre, yet compelling lyrics. As on the previous album, the sound brings to mind an updating of Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd, with a bit of early Brian Eno's deadpan delivery mixed in.

While not quite as ear catching as Maria, this album, even after numerous listenings, continues to offer a heaping helping of audio candy ton the discerning listener. I particularly like the interplay between the sax and guest violinist Patrick Q-Wright. True, there is no astounding virtuosity on the Pink Dots' albums, but there is plenty of aural pleasure.

Evolver | 4/5 |
